Chances are, even if you weren't a big fan of The X-Files, you know someone who was. One of the most popular shows on television throughout its run, The X-Files produced more than 200 episodes across nine full seasons, two movies, and elevated actors David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson to stardom. Twenty years after the show's debut, it's still revisited and celebrated by much of its fan base. And like many television series before it, The X-Files has seen its universe expanded or otherwise further explored through comics, the most recent and significant example being IDW's The X-Files Season 10. Written by Joe Harris, the ongoing series continues the adventures of Agents Mulder and Scully. In today's solicits for the titles the publisher will release in March, IDW revealed that Menton3 will take over as interior artist with issue #10, and the series covers will now be illustrated by the prolific and award winning Francesco Francavilla.
Francavilla, who ComicsAlliance recently named as one of the best cover artists of 2013, is a self-professed "huge" fan of the show. We spoke with the artist about his love for the series, as well as his approach to this latest project.
As the home of an abundant assortment of licensed titles -- many of which popularized at one time or another in animation -- IDW's in a pretty good place to play up its ties to Saturday morning cartoons. This September, the publisher will play up this relationship in titles with direct ties to animation like Black Dynamite, Doctor Who, Ghostbusters, G.I. Joe A Real American Hero, Popeye Classics, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles New Animated Adventures and Transformers: More than Meets The Eye, but also Danger Girl, Judge Dredd, T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents and... The X-Files? Hit the jump to see September's full line of "IDW Gets Animated" alternate covers.
